Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Ironically Enough my job is working with steel. I work with a type of steel known as tool steel. And I've seen the shapes and moulds that steel can be pressed into so as far as the fittings and steel theming would go, it is perfectly possible. But it would be very costly, they would probably just pa...

Re: Roper update

Ahh ok fair enough. There not poor and there not stuck there by financial circumstances. They don't have kids that have to go to local schools or anything, they have nothing really tying them to that house. They are really making this a huge deal for what appears to be there own satisfaction at the ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Will the construction of this effect the toilet building that sits behind the construction site? I still find this incredibly odd - surely all that steelwork would cost more than rebuilding the toilet block? I may be wrong i guess...... Maybe, but remember where else could it go? It couldn't move t...

Fried chicken co, next to oblivion. Friendly, nice restaurant and decent enough food, expensive as hell but what isn't at Alton towers?

Re: Roper update

Has anyone actually stood by the Ropers household and listened to how much noise comes from the park? I absolutely refuse to believe that the noise is that bad. There is a lot of distance between the rides and there house and there are trees and vast spaces that will soak up the sound, I can't imagi...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

I actually enjoyed Sub-Terra. I found it fun. And it gave me a few scares. What more can you want from an attraction, very well done in my opinion.

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

I thought this attraction was enjoyable and very well themed but I thought it was also lacking in some department, when I think of 4D I always think of Madame Tussauds Marvel 4D Cinema in London. I thought that was phenomenal, and although this was not at all bad, I do believe I went in there with e...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I was at the park yesterday and I got a few snaps that I posted on a website I write for. I'm not sure your forums rules for posting links to other sites but this is my own article and my photos taken by myself. So take a look.

Re: Roper update

The noise from the park is only ever a large amount during opening hours surely? Now I'm no genius but how exactly does this noise level which I doubt is really that loud, really bother there lives? It doesn't keep them awake at night as the park is closed. They don't open the park ridiculously earl...
